  • Cedar planks for grilling
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 11/2 teaspoons fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets, skinned
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. Half fill the sink with water. Arrange the cedar planks underwater to soak, at least 1 hour.
  2. In a 13×9-inch baking dish, combine the olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon zest, rosemary, thyme and garlic. Mix until well combined. Add the salmon, turning to coat with the marinade.
  3. Cover the baking dish, and refrigerate at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours.
  4. Preheat an outdoor grill to high heat, about 425 degrees F.
  5. Pat the salmon planks dry, and arrange the salmon on the planks. Transfer the planks to the grill. Cover, and cook 10-15 minutes until the salmon reaches your desired doneness.
  6. Serve with lemon wedges.
